Program Outcomes

Industrial buildings are structures used for storing, manufacturing, fabricating, and finishing of industrial products or other raw materials. For example are the manufacturing facilities, warehouses, silos, telecom centers, cold storage buildings, and R&D set up buildings.

Industrial buildings came into reality in the 18th century. Historians claim that the Industrial Revolution of England has a profound influence on building technology and society as a whole. The first factory was built in 1790 for the production of yarn. As they evolved over the 19th and 20th  centuries, the manufacturing systems upgraded to a wide range of goods.

Today in the 21st century, more than 25 percent of a country’s wealth allocated for construction is ascribed to industrial structure. In order to achieve high efficacy in their construction, methods like prefabrication and standardization of the entire structure are adopted. With the increase in urbanization and industrialization, it is now an opportunity for all civil engineers to reach great heights in their careers. For that to happen, here is a master course on industrial buildings. This course will cover every significant element such as foundation, steel frames, pipe racks, roof, sheds using softwares like STAAD.pro and SAP 2000.

It is a master course because of its depth of curriculum. Here, you will be part of 10 courses that will prepare you for the future and they are:

  • Modelling and Analysis of Industrial Structures using STAAD.Pro
  • Design and Analysis of Piperack structure
  • Design of Sheds with Gantry 
  • Structural Stability for Lateral loads
  • Basic Structural Engineering concepts of Industrial Structures
  • Structural Optimization of steel structures by Pre-Engineering
  • Structural Analysis and Design using SAP2000
  • Structural Aspects of Foundation Design

List of courses in this program

1Modelling and Analysis of Industrial Structures using STAAD.Pro

The initial industrial building was rectangular in plan and supported by stone walls and wooden roofs. As construction enterprises evolved and new building materials came into view, framed structures emerged.

This course will teach you:

  • The fundamentals on industrial buildings
  • Introduction of industrial buildings in STAAD pro
  • PEB and pipe rack structures
  • The basics of foundations 
  • Typical foundation design in STAAD pro 

All of this provides an understanding of basic loading patterns during service when exposed in realistic building context.

In the end, you will be a top choice to be considered by industries in their design engineer role even though no prior industrial experience is obtained

2Design and Analysis of Piperack structure

Steel pipe racks are structures that support pipes, power cables, and instrument cable trays in power plants. They have a series of transverse bends running along the length of the pipe system, spaced uniformly at 20 ft.

This course will help you with:

  • Detailed study of pipe rack design criteria
  • Load applications in STAAD-pro
  • Design of pedestal and foundation
  • Design of base plate and preparation of report

3Design of Sheds with Gantry

A gantry is an overhead bridge structure supporting equipment. It is particularly seen at most container terminals. 

This course will cover:

  • Design of cranes with gantry using STAAD pro 
  • Design of gantry using Staad pro

As most of the plants have shelters with or without gantry, engineers with these design skills are required in the industry.

4Structural Stability for Lateral loads

Wind load, seismic loads, water and earth pressures are examples of lateral loads. Every structure should be designed to withstand this load and here  you will learn how it's done. In this course, multiple modelling techniques will be illustrated relating to the analysis and design of lateral stability systems.

This course will teach you:

  • Loads that a typical structure needs to resist 
  • Gravity and lateral stability systems
  • Robustness requirements
  • Analysis and design lateral stability systems to IS 800:2007 code

This course will equip you with a thorough understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of structural lateral stability systems, what they are, what do they need to resist, and their different types and applications in real-life projects. 

5Type of buildings & provisions for Industrial structures

From this course on industrial structures you will gain knowledge on:

  • Warehouses/factory/casting yards
  • Manufacturing plants
  • Power plants
  • Data centers
  • Utility structures (Water tanks/pump houses / DG sets house etc.)
  • National Building Code (NBC provisions)

 It will help to flourish the analytical abilities of an engineer which will further boost up his engineering skills and judgment.

6Structural Optimization of steel structures by Pre-Engineering

Pre-engineered buildings (PEB) are steel buildings in which the framed members are fully fabricated in the factory. This method is dexterous due to its quality in pre-designing and prefabrication and economy. This method has various advantages over conventional steel building (CSB).

This course will teach you:

  • Design of Pre-Engineered steel buildings using MBMA codes
  • PEB design
  • AISC & MBMA codes

This will help in understanding the concepts of steel buildings and also AISC standards which can be useful to your path towards a foreign degree.

The skills developed will reduce the training investments of companies hiring you and your understanding of concepts can be clearly used for your advantage in the interviews.

7Structural analysis and design using SAP2000

SAP2000 is a single user interface used for modelling, analysis, design, and report extraction. This course will cover:

  • SAP2000 modeling including loading
  • SAP2000 model check and analysis
  • SAP2000 post-processing and interpretation of results

This course will bridge the gap between your academic knowledge and the industry requirements, thus saving the substantial cost for an employer to train you in the subject.

8Structural aspect of Foundation Design

Foundation is the base ground for a building. Hence it is of great importance to study the soil underground, design, and materials used.

This course that we have here covers:

  • Shallow foundations
  • Pile foundations
  • Rafts
  • Rafts on piles
  • IS code 2911 All parts
  • Machine foundations

This course provides the skills to apply academic learning to practical foundation design carried out by major infrastructure design consultants.

9Structural steel connection design

The use of iron in construction is more modern than you think, though it has been around for centuries. But to name a few, steel is today used in HVAC, electrical panels, foundation, etc. This is because steel is now attaining notability for its flexibility and steel components reduce construction time. 

This course on Steel connections will help you with:

  • Conceptual understanding of connection detailing and its purpose
  • Detailed procedure for manual design
  • Concepts on bolted and welded connection theory
  • Design of Connections for Shear, Moment, and Axial force

This course will certainly develop a better understanding of steel member connections and force flow.  

This course will bridge the gap between academic knowledge and industry requirements, thus it saves the substantial cost of an employer to train you in the subject. This will make you a preferred candidate.

10Structural steel connections using RAM Connections

In conventional analysis and design of steel and composite frames, joints are assumed to be pinned or fully rigid. But real joints exhibit characteristics over an extensive scale between these two extremes. Therefore it is necessary to continue the design analysis of steel connections in software.

This course that we have here covers:

  • Software applications of steel connections design
  • Practical knowledge on how to use commercial software for designing a steel connection. 

This course is focused on helping students cope with the vast gap between commercial consulting engineering services.
